Everton fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was confirmed that Huddersfield keeper Jonas Lossl would be joining the club on a free transfer, having signed a pre-contract agreement.
The Danish glovesman’s contract with the Terriers expires next month, and the Toffees have move quickly to snap up one of the stars of Huddersfield’s two-year stay in the Premier League.
In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
31-year-old Lossl has signed a three-year contract with the Merseysiders, where he is expected to play second fiddle to Jordan Pickford – he will most likely replace Maarten Stekelenburg as the club’s backup stopper after the Dutchman was placed on a list of players Everton are looking to sell.
It won’t be the most exciting signing of the summer window, but Marco Silva will be getting a solid keeper through the door on a free; it can be considered a very shrewd signing indeed.
Let’s take a look at how the Everton fans have reacted to their club’s first capture of the summer…

Free transfer and a decent back up, nothing wrong with that ??

Decent back up for Pickford. No brainer on a free really

Better than what we had at back up.
Get @1JoaoVirginia out on loan, he’ll be the man pushing Pickford in the future.

COYB lets back him last time we got a free player it worked out

This is great, now sign our boy @aftgomes??

So we’ve made enormous headway into solving the various positional problems by signing a goalie when we already have the best in England. We should be nailing down a proven striker throwing every last penny at him if we have to. Messrs Brands and Silva let’s prioritise please

Decent free. Improvement and younger than our current back up keeper.
